Forum: etree Subject: individual track count?

I’m curious if there’s a way to tell – by track/file – how often a particular item has been downloaded/listened to (if that data is even tracked). I’ve got some of the artists I post shows for asking me questions along those lines. We’ve been seeing a direct link between posting shows on archive and myspace/website hits. They are curious if there are any specific trends that favor cover tunes vs originals or reviewed shows vs un-reviewed shows. We want to take any non-anecdotal trends and capitalize on the findings. For example, that could mean playing Bob Dylan instead of Townes Van Zandt when they play a cover. We also want to see what kind of listening-bleed there is. For example, if someone listens to a particular song, what other songs are they checking out?

I’m interested to understand what’s available.

Thanks in advance. Much obliged.

I don't believe there is anything like that in place as of now. The only counts are page hits and downloads (of any track). I could be wrong, but feel rather confident in that i've never seen it.
